Google Cloud unveiled on Thursday that it will use Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s (AMD) 3rd generation EPYC processors for its newest service the Tau Virtual Machines (VMs).

According to the company's statement, the Tau VMs are meant to optimize scale-out workloads, as well as to provide integration with other applications of the same type. Additionally, the company touted that the new service can deliver more than 40% better performance for that price range, as it stated that they are focused on delivering "compute-heavy, business-critical applications."

AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su also commented on the deal saying: "We work extremely closely with strategic partners like Google Cloud to ensure our AMD EPYC processors are ideally suited to meet the growing customer demand for more compute, more performance, and more scalability."
